BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. — A Tennessee community college will close one satellite campus and sell off another as part of an ongoing budget realignment.

The Kingsport Times-News reports Northeast State Community College announced on Thursday its Bristol campus will close at the end of the fall semester. The Blountville-based school has also put its Gray campus up for sale and moved offerings from it to other locations, although a deadline for bids has not been set.

Northeast State spokesman Bob Carpenter says the school is evaluating budgets and leases at all its sites, but no further changes are currently expected.

Interim college president James King says the school would like to keep its options open for a future presence in Bristol.

Students and personnel at the Bristol campus will be relocated to other sites.
